Caring for a loved one can be stressful for a
caregiver. However, seeking professional
help can alleviate this
Caring for a loved one with physical, mobility, sensory, or mental health challenges can be stressful for a caregiver. However, seeking professional help can alleviate this and provide much-needed physical and mental relief, as well as guidance and support. A professional care provider can help keep the client active, engaged, and independent through various activities, providing companionship and taking them on outings such as lunch, walks, shopping trips, or visits to the hairdresser. These activities can help maintain the person's independence and alleviate feelings of loneliness, a common concern among the elderly.
For ultimate peace of mind, live-in care is an option, fostering strong relationships between the carer and client, like the bond between John, living with dementia, and Lesley, a care professional from Home Instead, who enjoys taking him on outings to historical museums. Similarly, Graham, another Home Instead carer, discovered that his health club, Nuffield in Farnham, had a poolside hoist, enabling him to take his client Hari, who had a stroke, swimming, and they now have an even stronger friendship.
